Kim Davis fights for re-election as a Republican


Kim Davis made the news in 2015 after the US Supreme Court allowed same-sex couples to marry but she still refused to issue marriage licenses for them. The clerk for Rowan County, Kentucky, decided to ignore the ruling and subsequent demands from a string of state courts, saying that she was discriminated against by her religious beliefs. But she today filed for re-election as a Republican, despite facing challenges from four separate Democrats. David Ermold, who was filmed being denied a marriage license by Davis is one of her potential rivals. Davis, who was initially elected as a Democrat, has changed her political views. Ermold – who was eventually allowed to marry his partner by a deputy clerk in 2015 – says Davis has proved herself unfit to hold the office, and will battle to stop her retaining the clerk’s position.
